About

Compassionate Care Hospice is in search of volunteers for our patients and families in the Pittsburgh Area. The duties of a direct volunteer consist of:

  • Providing visits to the patient for social support
  • Maybe some light housekeeping
  • Helping to run errands

Our families need relief at times and the volunteer will just sit with the patient while caregivers enjoy a restful activity or get other things done. There are people who feel called to do "Bedside Vigil" to patients who are in the final hours of life. This is especially beneficial to those who do not have family members to sit with them.

Some volunteers have an interest in:

  • Pet therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Massage or Reiki Therapists
  • Providing prayers
  • Reading to patients

Utilizing your talents for others is great, but if you just want to help and bring yourself, that is terrific too! Your presence can offer support that people need! If patients visits are not for you, we also have in-direct volunteers who help hospice by:

  • Working in the office
  • Assisting with mailings
  • Making phone calls

Volunteers must met the same requirements as employees such as training, a background check, and a TB test. These are provided free of charge! Patients and families truly love the volunteers and the difference they make in their lives. If you have an hour or two a week to share to touch the lives of our patients and their families, please call us today for an appointment. We really look forward to hearing from you! Please call or email us today! Serious Inquiries only, please.
